, you said there were parts of obama care you would want to keep, et cetera. what would you have done? you just saw the republican party try to fund it or delay it. how would have dealt with obama care had you become president? >> well, i'm not president so i can't be so clear-minded as to tell you what i would have done, but my own plan was to say to each state you've got a requirement to move to a point where all your people are insured and you cover preexisting conditions. we're going to give you flexibility from the federal government level to help you be able to do so. and with regards to what's going on in washington lately with the shutdown, if you will, to try and replace or defund obama care, there's no question that every republican i know of wants to see obama care replaced, repealed and repaired. at the same time, the tactic of shutting down government is one which i thought was not a good tactic in the first place, i thought it would not be effective and it was not effective. you heard this morning, for instance, the campaign manager of fran cuccinelli, when they were tal
, the public still wants to give obama care a chance. 47% want to keep or expand the law. only 24% want to see the law repealed. and 13% say they want the law repealed and replaced with a republican sponsored alternative. clearly not a vote of confidence for the republicans. 13%. and clearly 47% saying we want to keep or expand obama care. >> yeah. and imagine what the numbers would be like if the republicans actually had a viable alternative to the law that they're trying to kill. one. and two, wouldn't it be nice if the republican party rather than trying to kill settled law worked with the administration and democrats in the house and senate to make the law better. no one's saying that the law is perfect. but certainly it -- you know, the way government is supposed to work is that the opposition looks for a problem and tries to say here's our plan to make it better. and here's why you should focus on what we're doing. that's not what the republicans are doing at all in this case. >> no. i think that's telling. when you look at the republican plan, the only one we saw was romney care, massac
's not as if this is a one-day sale or something. all right? so we've just got to keep on working. >> president obama just moments ago talking to grassroots supporters about the gop's fight against his health care law. right wing spend machine has been peddling false and misleading information about obama care. using stories about the tiny fraction of people who will have to shift their coverage. fox news has pounced on people like diane barrette. with one of those stories. just watch how fox used her to trot out their tired old talking points about the law. >> did this happen to you? a florida woman finds out she has to pay ten times as much for health insurance that is because she's using her current plan to obama care. i got a copy of your florida blue insurance. and about $54 a month. now i understand that under obama care it's going to go up at least they said that the policy they would offer you under florida blue would be $591. is that correct? >> that's correct. >> but all that spin hides the truth. a new republic reporter tracked diane down and explained how obama care plans could provide much be
that the website has not worked as well as it should. >> meanwhile new questions over promises made by obama. >> if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor, if you like your healthcare plan, you will be able to keep your healthcare plan. >> that's not exactly the case for millions of americans in the individual insurance market. the majority of americans with individual plans will find their policy changed or cancelled under obamacare rules. >> one of the addressed issues of the affordable care act designed to address was the need to provide greater security those americans who had no other options. >> washington i am shannon travis, ktvu channel 2 news >>> . >>> looks like it is here to stay, rosemary. >> yeah , we have a chilly start tomorrow. in fact, halloween looks quite nice, i will show you that in the extended forecast. let's take a look at the current numbers. temperatures in the 50s. 50 half-moon bay and 54 in concord and 58 in santa rosa. these numbers are in a few degrees of where we were yesterday. changes are taking place, we continue to watch the system that br
of america. >> major speech by president obama about the health care reform. he said, we are going to keep working, keep moving forward. we're going to see this through despite these computer glitches. he did acknowledge that there are many people who are receiving cancellation notices. and said, some americans who have had plans that they bought on their own are getting notices that their existing plans do not apply to the new law. he said these people have had cut-rate plans that do not offer real help in the face of accidents or a curveball that life will throw you. he said, ever since the law was passed, if insurers decided to cancel your plan, they have to replace it with a new plan. today that means every plan that's covered, a core set of -- like mental care, maternity care. i want to bring in eamon javers. i guess what he didn't say are the plans that are being replaced are a lot more expensive than the plans that were in place. that's what we're hearing from our viewers. that they are getting sticker shock. >> right. a lot of people are complaining they're being cut off from cheap
. but for the people on the individual market, wild wild west, only 17% of those people before obama care could keep their individual plans. they were getting thrown off before. now we're hearing from you guys as if obama care is the cause of something. obama care is trying to fix that. if there are people who are being hurt we can work together to fix it. but don't you think the old system had a bunch of losers in the old market? >> first of all by law they can't deny people care. under hippa laws and before. if a person was discontinued they had to offer them something else. this is something jan you brought up that's important. some people are getting the discontinuation letters from their insurance company. they're saying you're not going to get it. some poem will be able to go onto the exchange and they'll get a better deal because they'll have a subsidy or something else because of their income that. part is new. these two groups are not necessarily exactly the same. so some people here are not going to be able to be in on that. so that's the concern, too. so we're going to find a big chunk of
at an organizing for action health care summit looking to rally grass roots support for obama care. the white house remains under fire because of president obama's promise that if americans liked their health insurance plan, they could keep it. but according to the associated press, at least 3.5 million americans have already been issued cancellation notices from their health insurance provid s providers. that number is likely to go up as data from half the states still remains unavailable. and there is a report white house officials debated the health care pledge back in 2009 in the likelihood that every american would in fact be able to keep their coverage. yesterday former white house adviser david axelrod defendeded the president on "meet the press". >> why did not you or somebody else say to him, mr. president, don't say no matter what you're going to keep your health care plan? was that bad practice? >> hindsight is 20/20. >> that's why you're there. >> the vast majority of americans, that statement will hold true for. for this small group, it hasn't. but the calamitous thing is that the web
to a value-based payment which is necessary to make obama care work. gretchen? >> so much that keeps coming out. thanks so much, wendell. for more on this, let's bring in the editor for "the national review." i don't know what's better here, rich, for me. you can keep your job unless you're fired. you've got the president's people yesterday on the sunday talk shows saying, well, you can keep your plan unless it's been canceled. you've got a former speech writer for president bush saying this was premeditated deception. where do you fall? >> yeah, the last couple of weeks have been a catastrophe for the president's credit. and they reported that white house aides debated this line about whether -- how you can keep your insurance if you like it. and they said, wait a minute, we've got to nuance this at the least. and it's the political aides that insisted on a lack of nuance and maintained this stark line. to me, this is the smoking gun this was a deliberate deception. >> so back to him as a speech writer in a similar situation and what you're talking about says this. if the fact checkers tol
and their doctors, they would be able to keep them under the new law. but nbc news is reporting the obama administration knew for several years the majority of people who buy their own health coverage wouldn't be able to keep this happen their policies under obama care. nbc says those forced to buy new insurance may experience sticker shock from higher premiums. when the law was passed in march of 2010, it was supposed to grant grandfather in existing policies, even if they didn't comply with the rules. but that same year, the department of health and human services rewrote some regulations essentially getting rid of the grandfather exemption. now, the white house isn't disputing the report, but tells nbc most individual policyholders should receive better health coverage that's more affordable thanks to government subsidies. the administration says no policy will be canceled due to pre-existing medical conditions. now, congress will get the chance today to grill the top administration official closest to the rollout of the troubled obama care website. medicare chief marilyn tavenner will
the fact that president obama promised people that they could keep the insurance that they had if they wanted to, but many americans are reporting that that is not happening. here is an example of the exchange. >> what do you say to mark and lucinda in my district who had a plan, liked it, it was affordable, but it is being terminated. >> insurance companies cancel individual policies year in and year out. they are not lifetime plans. >> let me move on -- [ overlapping speakers ] >> it's what they wanted, and i will remind you, some people like to drive a ford not a ferrari, you are take away their choice. >> well, dell that was just a sample of what secretary sebelius has been experiencing all through the morning and into the afternoon and more to come. >> and randall with 41 votes to do away with what republicans are calling obamacare, i don't think she was expecting a warm welcoming. what are the democrats saying? >> well, at least a few have asked her to modify the plan. one asked to extend the sign-on period. and she said four months would be enough. and another one, a dem
could keep your health insurance really only meant until obama care went in affect. they will keep it going. if people don't get insurance they will pay the individual man date. >> there is a host of issues that follow that. republicans are calling for a delay. how do they gain. >> this is tricky for the republicans, they need the president to be stubborn about this while calling for the kelay. they don't win if there is a delay. it will go to the back burner and it needs to go in to affect for the republicans to have leverage. look at the shutdown polls, people blamed republicans. the president's popularity plummets and ted cruz popularity are going up. republicans are beginning to win. >> you argue that you allow the law to stumble on its own weak foundation? >> yeah, i think they have to. the president designed it and wrote it and didn't want republican input and say it will help the americans. see if they are right. >> you break tyou bought. it thank you eric ericson. >> by the way. it is not just six months. we have a couple of years to get it up and running and working and my
the administration keeps pointing out that the fate of obama care does not rest solely on its website. today the president responded to the possibility that not enough healthy young people will sign up. >> what's in it for the young people? are they just the people who will finance the older generation and their medical problems? >> this is pretty straightforward. analysis has shown if you're between 18 and 34, about half of the people can get high quality health care for less than 50 bucks a month. less than your cell phone or cable bill. >> and the president seemed to be trying to connect directly with the young people whose dollars would help bank role the system for the elderly. >> i kind of remember i thought i was invincible. i broke my nose playing basketball and i had unexpected illnesses or accidents. and making sure that you have got coverage insure ensus that e not paying out of pocket with money you don't have. >> and then it's on to immigration reform. a subject many in washington used to consider the third rail of politics. it seemed tantalizing within reach to candidate obama.
today over president barack obama 's promise. if you like your plan, you can keep your plan. let's bring in our panel. steve hays of the weekly standard. stoddard from the hill, columnist charles krauthammer. i would love to see kids get your book and burst into tears. >> you get a tomato in your ear if that happens. another day, another surprise about obama care. it's not just individual plans. it turns out some people that get health insurance from their employers may eventually be forced into government mandated insurance plans. charles, your thoughts? >> i think this was always known. it was clear millions of americans who are on employer's plans would lose insurance. either the employer would drop them and push them to exchanges or reduce their hours so they become part time. so it gets you under the limit. the employer is then exempt from the requirements. or they let you go if it's a smaller business that can't afford the increase in the cost. as a result. i think that's not automatic the way it is with an individual. you have your own plan. it doesn't meet all the requirements th
. >>> coming up, the obama care lies. they keep piling on. one outraged religious leader fights back, next. >>> and it's your last chance to vote. how would you fix obama care? facebook or tweet. >>> the president's signature health care law is bloken promises and lies for millions of americans. has it come down to a complete loss of trust? with me pastor at the church of the holy family, father gerald murray. thank you so much for being with us this evening. you are a trusting man. do you trust this administration? >> very hard to trust the administration after what's gone on. remember that this latest revelation of untruthfulness was proceeded by what was told to cardinal nolan. he was told by the president, catholic church concerns of contraception and abortion would be dealt with, not forced on the catholic church and that's what the hhs mandate was. we're fighting that in court and the administration won't back down. this is just another in a series of big disappointments. >> you know, father, it's from your perspective, obviously, you live by the word of an individual. you want to. y
that is despite president obama's repeated promise that if you like your plan you can keep it managing editor bob cusack joins us. nice so see you, sir. >> hey, greta. >> what's your if you get to keep your -- if you like your insurance policy you get to environmental protection agency it? >> remember in 2009, 2010, they were down in the votes. they needed to get the votes even though they controlled both the house and the senate. they need to push it through. so they made some promises and i think there are s. going to be more congressional investigations who knew what when because now there are reports that the administration knew some people were going to lose their healthcare coverage? >> so they knew at the time? >> that's a new report that just came out. >> why did they say that? either they said that because they truly believed it or because they were trying to hood wink the american people. one or the other. >> some of the plans they are saying are really low level plans. okay. so that means that people don't pay as much to get into them. so, now,. >> but a lot of people like those. >> ex
could not keep their health plans. despite president obama's repeated assurances to the american public if they like their plan they could keep it. here to weigh in, a visiting scholar at the american enterprise institute and which lowry, editor for the national review. i will start with you. hundreds of thousands of people. nyh take a look at these numbers , california, new york, all of the country, florida, losing coverage. we were told not once, not twice, but multiple times that we could keep our insurance plans. what happened? >> it represents an enormous credibility problem for this administration. he said it repeatedly. it is on tape. we are hearing it over and over again on every media outlet. he did not know, you should have. this is a key basic element of the law, creating a federal definition of insurance. your plan does not meet the definition you are out of luck. anyone would have known this is going to happen. gerri: to you. the administration is fighting back saying that, well, look, the information was out there. he talked about this a couple of years ago in the media. i
and president obama is reaching for the door to get out and president clinton wants to keep telling him that participant of the story and they get to the event, they are scheduled to have dinner, clinton and obama, one on one and president obama grabs some staff because he wants cover and the whole meal talks about kids and families because he can't deal with president clinton for hours at a time. >> that's interesting. >> what is interesting, is ult ult myly president obama comes around and sees his talent and comes to rely on him not just for a big sure jit and as we know, president clinton was a key sure jet for president obama and after that terrible first day president obama had in denver, president obama and clinton are at a big fundraiser at jeffrey's house in beverly hills and the two of them, obama and clinton walk off together, go to the front porch and clinton counsels obama how to recover from the debate. so not only was clinton a big ally on the stump but became a friend, and the first person, by the way, the first person that obama called on election night after hear rg fr
, you'll be able to keep your health care plan. period. >>> and a reality check on obama care sticker shock. many people who weren't happy about paying more may actually be getting more. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in the situation room. >>> we begin this hour with breaking news. we have new information about a confidential report. the obama care website had problems, a warning to the administration shortly before the launch that apparently that warning was ignored. we have team coverage of the obama care under fire right now. what are you learning? >> well, in newly obtained documents, we're now getting a fuller picture of how much the government new or should have known about problems with the website on the same day that a mea culpa was issued. they were warned that the obama care website wasn't ready to go live. cgi issued this confidential report. it warned of a number of open risks and issues for the website. the report gave the highest priority to things in plain language like we don't have access to monitoring tools. not enough time and schedule to perform adequate
keep their insurance and that was not the truth. and whether you like the model of obama care or not, the fact that the president sold it on a basis that was not true has undermined the foundation of his second term. i think it's rotting it away. and i think the only way he can rebuild credibility is to work with republicans and democrats and try to rebuild a foundation. we've got to have a president. we've got to have a president that can lead, and right now he's not able to do so. >> that's very strong language. you're saying the way he pitched your ability to keep a plan will undermine his entire second term. but how do you know -- >> there's no question. >> assuming they get the site up and working, that's a big assumption at this point, but if that happens, how is it that in the end the same approach that you took in massachusetts with regard to subsidies, with regard to a mandate, why don't you think that could ultimately be successful? >> well, what's going to happen is the people are going to lose insurance. you're going to have millions of individuals lose their health care
with excerpts of barack obama saying you could get -- they're lying to you. you get to keep your plan. and you get to keep your doctor. >> for the people on employer based health care that's true. you agree with that. 80% of the people. >> that's not entirely true for people with employer-based health care. >> if we have a new law we know there will be changes. >> there is something else going on here. and let me talk to you about their. you'u you're going to get this plan? >> no. >> really? >> no. i got to go through the exchange. wait a minute, my employer, this is an employer subsidy. this is what we had before. as a matter of fact, you know, the reality is that members of congress have to go through the exchange. i'm going through the exchange. >> with 75% subsidy that nobody else gets. >> what was the deal before? right? i used to have federal -- >> you get to keep your plan. unlike everybody else in america. you get to keep the same arrangement. >> we can discuss what members of congress are getting, but that's not really the point here. the point is you've been against the health care l
's ceo was asked about the new health law and report that says the obama administration knew millions of americans would not be able to keep their insurance plans. >> the only people who can keep their plan indefinitely are people who in the individual and small group market were in that% market before march 23rd, 2010 and over that period from march 2010 until now did not change plans. >> acquisitions that the white house misled people to believe they could keep insurance plans and the website resulted in heated questions on capitol hill today about what went wrong and who is to blame. bertha coombs has more. >> reporter: mike was surprised when anthem blue cross notified him the family health plan would no longer before offered. >> the primary reason they said is there is ten or 11 components that every plan has to carry. >> reporter: the retierped executive say as comparable plan on will cost twice as much 140 0 a month. >> i was shocked to find out my plan was being cancelled and not compliant and my shock, i guess, kind of turned maybe to anger. >> reporter: there
plan you get to keep it? that might be true but now he says only if he's good enough for obama care. >> if you have one of the substandard plans before the affordable care act became law and you really liked that plan you are able to keep it. that is what i said when i was running for office. that was part of the promise we made. ever since the law passed if insurance decided to downgrade or cancel the substandard plans what we said is we have to replace them with quality comprehensive coverage. that, too, was the central premise of the affordable care act. >> president obama is fighting for obama care from recent ground. his approval rating dropped to an all time low of 42 percent according to the new nbc news wall street journal pole. 51 percent disapprove of his job performance. >> celebration in boston. >> it wasn't happened at fenway park for 95 years. the red sox world champions. >> the red sox win their third world series since 2004 and their first at home since 1918. the championship passed an incredible turn around for a team that finished last in its division last year. >>

anything about it if the obama's could keep a secret. it was acknowledged that he wanted to research what the move would have meant for mr. obama, his popularity in 2011 was at its lowest state. he said this was due diligence. i was vocal about looking into a whole bunch of things and this was one of them. you have to remember that the president was in awful shape. we were wondering what to do. ashland, ohio. republican line. what is your story? caller: health care. host: ok. . health care. caller: my daughter is dating a guy who has a couple of shops. he has been going to business meetings. he even went to see the president. he is having a hard time figuring out the health care. how much will it cost to employees? now you have to -- you have to find out what to do. what do employers do? what else is coming down the pike? how many taxes are in there? nice that it is covering people, but when will it -- what is it going to cost us? i think that americans really want to know and it is not out there in black-and-white. you should be able to look and see. there are a lot of important things t
hand we have stories about nsa tapping every phone on the planet and the other part of the obama administration can't keep a website up. you almost want to swim responsibilities here. >> switch the two brains. >> could it effectively do the spying on angela merkel and someone else do the website. the obama administration would be in better shape. >> what are the implications of both. how angry are americans about either one. i don't want to go too far into the ac stuff. i think that is the man with two brains. but the idea of collecting metadata on americans. i think there is some people activists, seekers, writers, journalists that are legitimately upset about this. i'm not entirely sure the american public would begin to litigate this. >> i wouldn't go to aca. i don't think that's a good analogy. i do think good analogy to drones, deportation, all these policies that rhetorically, especially when he was running for office first time around he distanced himself from. then all of a sudden, inch by inch, moment by moment, we realized he's doubled down on some of the policies bush
, both president'presidentsbush. how do you keep promises kept. >> the first president obama never recovered from the no new tax pledge that was, in fact, broken. and the president president obama had a missed opportunity with the supreme court nominee, and then hurricane katrina did not work out in the way we would have wanted it to work out from a response perspective. but he doubled down on iraq and bucked the popular trend and the advice of his advisers by going for the surge and it was quite successful. president obama will really have to decide where he's going to focus his attention. i think it has to be obamacare because that's his real legacy if he's going to have one. as laura said it's about competence. he has the law passed. now he needs to implement it in a way that gains people's confidence, and he needs head winds because people don't like the mandate. >> there is the day-to-day, the big picture. >> i think he has to show himself leading on these things. thi would not be doing campaign-style speeches around the countries. i would be having meeting with the top people
exhaustion, he'll be covered under obama care. >> if you keep talking they can't throw you off. it's a real rule. >> he is trusted and fair. >> listening to ted cruz, how awful is that? >> everyone laughs, but where's the next joke? >> joining me now talk radio consultant holland cook. good to have you with us tonight. i don't want to date both of us, but what is the name of that old show where the announcer said will the real ted cruz please stand up. >> please stand up. ed, hello from boston home of your world champion red sox and john lackey got the win. but i laughed a minute ago when you mentioned dr. seuss because elsewhere in massachusetts, dr. seuss and i share a birthplace. springfield, mass. and everybody there already thought ted cruz was a joker when he read "green eggs and ham" during his senate talk-athon. because what he didn't realize is it's a story about if you try something you might actually like it. so he's already a bit of a jester. we have another dvr alert, by the way. he's going to be doing duck dynasty if they can teach him how to hold a shotgun the proper way. >>
in the individual market cannot keep their policies even if they want to and the administration knew that. >> obama for his part is saying some critics of the program are being grossly misleading. tim carney from the washington examiner and juan williams, a columnist for the hill and lauren ashburn are joining us. lauren, why are the media engaging this? >> i think president obama has lost the benefit of the doubt with the washington media and it started when the department of justice started spying on reporters. and i think -- >> and he said he didn't know. >> and then said i didn't know that it happened. and so now it's become the i don't know guy. the i don't know king as opposed to the person who is leaving the country. then it moves on to the bloggers, then to the media. one person reports that and it sets the tone for the rest of the media. >> tim carney, i can see you thinking i told you so. >> sometimes@of the on my friends are banging their heads against the wall even on obama care. we said during the debate, you are not going to be able to keep your plan. the point of this law is to outla
against the wall even on obama care. we said during the debate, you are not going to be able to keep your plan. the point of this law is to outlaw certain plans. >> so you think the media is late to the game? >>. >> i think the media -- >> until the program takes effect, you can't be absolutely certain in advantage that it's goes to spin out. >> the cbo knew it would be 40% to 60% of the congressional budget. and the white house wanted to outlaw certain plans that they didn't like. that was the point of the law. >> isn't to a certain degree the piling on, the president is down in the polls and the portrait of the day is showing, depicting this president being out of the loop on lots of things? >> anytime you can see the king has no clothes, that's very good ford media because then it senses the media is in the forefront at the point of making news with a new analysis of this president. >> i wasn't expecting an x-rated image here. >> even in the analysis we just heard about health care, look, the fact is that it affect aes small percentage of market. it's 40%, 60% of 5%, so 95% not being a
of obama care over the last several years saying time and time again, fundamental to his plan was the right to keep their own insurance plan, and he knew that was not the case. >> he criticized the sloppy rollout of the exchanges online, and rejected the president's praise of the health care reform law, and he said he passed a similar one in massachusetts. >> in massachusetts we phased in the requirements so that there was a slow rollout, and that way you can test the systems as you went along to make sure there would not be glitches and perhaps the most important lesson the president, i think, failed to learn was, you have to tell the american people the truth. >> meanwhile, senior white house correspondent said the president did keep his white house and pointed the finger at insurance companies. >> if the president didn't intend to keep his promise, why would he go out of his way to make a provision. if your plan has been downgraded or cancelled, you can't. >> and steve, we heard from governor romney blasting the president today on his health care legislation that became one of the larges
) but the merkel jerks out there keep saying ooh, but remember what obama said in his 2008 berlin speech? >> true partnership and true progress requires constant work and sustained sacrifice. they require allies who will listen to each other, learn from each other, and, most of all, trust each other. (cheers and applause). >> stephen: listen, learn, trust. you know, two out of three ain't bad. (laughter) i just hope the europeans can find in the their hearts to trust us again so they'll start talking about things on the phone that are worth listening to. here to tell me if they ever will is pulitzer prize winning national security correspondent for the "new york times" mark mazzetti. mark, thanks so much for being here.

. this is why republicans are going to keep fighting to protect consumers from the consequences of the health care law. >> we also learned something pretty stunning. the obama administration knew all along that as many as 93 million americans may be unable to keep their health plans under obamacare and notwithstanding the president's repeated, chronic promises that everyone who liked their plan a -- could keep them. remember that? now here is ellen ratner and fox news contributor. and the white house political director of the matt, i have right here, this is the federal register dated june 17th, 2010. in it the administration, that is the treasury labor health will project $93 million americans they project will lose their health plan. that is the break down. this includes both employer plans and individual policies that would be lost. yet the president repeatedly stood before the american people and he promised no one, absolutely no one would ever lose their plan, period. is that a presidential deception on an unpress sented scale? unprecedented scale? >> if you are one of the millions of am
or could not do without obama care, you could keep that policy, even if it's a lousy policy. it's only if the insurance company changed the policy afterwards or bred out a new policy oh, which didn't meet the minimum requirements. you know, one thing everybody forgets, 55% of people who go bankrupt in this country go bankrupt because of a medical emergency. and 75% of the people go bankrupt because of medical emergency had insurance. which when they got sick wasn't sufficient and made them go bankrupt. one of the major points of this bill is we're saying nobody is going bankrupt for lack of a decent insurance policy again. you will have insurance that is worthy of the name insurance instead of something that says well you've got 25,000 deductible or will drop you the moment you get sick. >> thank you for that explanation. congressman gerald nather, appreciate you being here. >> good to be here. >>> while the house is busting rocks, the president's one-time presidential rival, well, he's still deeply engaged in electoral fantasies. >> how would you have dealt with obama care had you bec

. president obama has given repeated assurances about americans being able to keep current plans if they're happy with those plans under the affordable health care act and speeches going back as far as four years ago. listen. >> if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor under the reform proposals that we put forward. if you like your private health insurance plan, you can keep it. if you like the plan you have, you can keep it. if you like the doctor you have, you can keep your doctor, too. we will keep promise to the american people. if you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor, period. if you like your health care plan, you'll be able to keep your health care plan period. if you like your doctor, you'll be able to keep your doctor. if you like your health care plan, you'll be able to keep your health care plan. if you've got health insurance you like your doctor, you like your plan, you can keep your doctor, you can keep your plan. >> well, it hasn't really worked out like that not exactly anyway. joe johns joining us from washington. but like a lot of things,
keep it. if you bought it since then you can't necessarily keep it. in california it's 50/50. 50% of the people in the individual market have a truly grandfathered plan, and 50% don't. >> so the obama administration said multiple times that you can keep your insurance policy, what have they been talking about and what about this miscommunicati miscommunication. >> they were looking at the employer market. they were trying to maintain the way people were getting their existing policy. many people may like their existing policy, but they may have to change. >> if they have to change, and they're getting this letter in the mail, what option dos they have? >> they can go to . they can browse, they can talk to an independent broker, they can shop around, they can buy through these new marketplaces or off the market places but they need to look and see what other options are out there for them and sign up for something. >> what aspects of these insurance plans aren't hitting the wall? why aren't they having to change their plans or getting cancellation notice. >> it may
